              Yes, this is a good school. the core teachers are excellent. It is clean and there is a deliberate curriculum. the sensory integration room is unique as well. One of the major deterrents is the owner. she comes across as overly enthusiatic and believable but she can be erratic, irrational and unpleasant. As long as you don't have to interact with her you'll be fine. send your little ones there, but tread lightly with the owner.

              My children and I have had a great experience with The Goddard School! They are so knowlegeable and caring I never worry about my boys. They answered all my questions when we toured the school and I was very impressed with the staff including the teachers, directors, and the owner. My boys love going to school and learning new things everyday. They are excited about the new Cafe and talk about all the new foods they are trying. They have so much fun and can't wait to get there each morning! Keep doing what you're doing

              My son has been at the Goddard School at Crabapple for a year this July, and we are very happy with the school! The staff and directors are friendly and always happy to answer my questions. My son was previously at another school we loved, then when we moved he tried a school around the corner that was awful. I was concerned for my 2 year old's safety all day. When I went to Goddard after two weeks at his ""new school"" the owner was very comforting and spent the time to show me what a great school Goddard would be for us. She was right! There are safety features on doors, it is clean, teachers are great and well-trained, there are fun events often for the kids, and fun events that parents can participate in as well! They call me if anything is out of the ordinary with my son, which is so comforting for me! I can't think of anything I would change about our school, we love it for our first child and will send our future kids there as well! Thank you Goddard for all you do!

              I had my kids there and you just get a sense of not ever being told the whole story. Never can really put your finger on it, but some of the teachers are very questionable in their ability to care for your children. We reported several incidents that occurred with our kids and it was shrugged off by the so called management. Looks are deceiving as well. they will tell you that they keep low, NAEYC ratios. Show up unannounced and you will see it is all a lie. Lots of "drama" between staff too. Some of it filters into classrooms and we walked in early one day to find the Asst Director screaming at her teacher in front of the kids. We found out later it was the first of many, many times this occurs on a weekly basis in the classrooms. A friend of ours there actually had her child say she was afraid of going to school because Ms. XXXXX slammed doors and screamed at people all the time. They also cut corners with snacks. State mandated offerings of juice is only given out if state is known to be in the building.
